No rehabilitation for surrendering Tigers?

    There is an urgent need for GOSL to take necessary actions and prepare for a significant inflow of people from the Vanni region.

    The real challenge is to clearly define the selection criteria which separates an innocent Tamil civilian from a former LTTE guy.

    According to the parents of these surrendees the youths seek custody from the SLA and the rearmed EPDP. How can there be any LTTE in SLA controlled areas of Jaffna as the SLA constantly cordon and search for them. There are some retired Sinhala Judges in the HRC want to do propaganda at the expense of these victims.

    Yeah nice spin on this, they are running from the CRIMINAL STATE, not the LTTE, liars.

    1 more pathetic handling. Our (Sri Lankan) government has always been late to do the right thing. Like having translators at each government place to help people speaking minority lanuages. They never learn from mistakes. They talk about doing big things, but never pay attention to small things that make a big impact. All these young people should be made part of economy any where in the contry before it is too late for them or the country.

    Whom does the president protect by prolonging the investigation and tampering with the evidence of the killing of 17 aid workers inn Mutur last year?

    [ Identifying killers is core issue: ACF

    Action Against Hunger (Action Contre la Faim - ACF) whose 17 aid workers were killed last year, said in a statement that though it agrees to cooperate with the Government, the core issue was to identify and prosecute the perpetrators of the killing.

    The statement says that it had been informed of a letter sent by Secretariat for Coordinating the Peace Process (SCOPP) Secretary General Prof. Rajiva Wijesinha to Human Rights and Disaster Management Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe that was publicly released to an unknown mailing list.

    ?The previously declared position of ACF remains the same that ACF fully agrees to cooperate and to answer questions related to the Mutur killing, within the framework of an independent and international inquiry. However, the core issue remains the identification and prosecution of the perpetrators through an effective criminal investigation led by the Sri Lankan Government?, it added.

    Susith

    I agree This is the only way we can make this right. We as sinhala has neglected our Tamil people for too long now. These youth have suffeded and took huge risk by surrendering so GOSL it?s the putting right that counts now. Before it?s too late!

    GOSl should turn them to a military battalion like Gurkha`s.

    As they are fed with weapon training and killer mentality. Than rehabilitating them, easy to turn them into a guerrilla battalion.
